Adapt Protest Scarves

Adapt, Kniterate and EcoKnitware Project to knit protest scarves on a Kniterate machine with sustainable and traceable yarn from Italy. Produced Locally in London.

EcoKnitware is working with Adapt and Kniterate to produce protest gear knitted scarves!

The scarves are being produced by EcoKnitware locally in London on a digital knitting machine manufactured by Kniterate. They are being knitted with fully traceable and sustainable yarns sourced from Italy.

By knitting locally in London we can reduce the environmental impact for the production of the scarves and all waste wool will be used in other knitting projects.

For Adapt, this is the first in an ongoing collaborative platform exploring the concept of protest garments for use in and out of direct action.

This first edition brings together 8 artists who have all created their own version of a Protest Scarf. Recognising the signals of football crowds and the language and uniform of football garments, this project takes inspiration from football fandom.

For Kniterate, this is the first project which uses one of their compact digital knitting machines & easy to use digital software to produce production knitwear for sale. Kniterate has been closely involved in the project from the offset by turning the artist's designs into digital knitting patterns that can then be knitted using their machine.


Scarves are available for purchase from Adapt Protest Gear for just £52 with 23% of the sale price going to Client Earth.


Along with Adapt, we would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who has given their time to this project!
